1/10/1931 BBC gets the Scoop

January 10, 1931.  On this day a new serial appeared on BBC radio.  The Scoop was a twelve-part story with each chapter written and read by a  member of the Detection Club.  Dorothy L. Sayers started the game on this night, followed a week later by Agatha Christie.  Among the best known names that followed were Ronald Knox, Anthony Berkeley and E.C. Bentley.
